Celebrating 50 years of sparking the musical imagination.


Join us for an extraordinary season of concerts and events to celebrate this milestone.

Faculty Chamber Concert & Dinner: French Connections

Local celebrities Gregor Craigie and Donovan Waters (narrators) and conductor Owen Underhill (BMus ’75) join School of Music faculty in a program of stories and songs.

UVic Chorus & Orchestra: Gala Concert

We are thrilled to welcome founding artistic director of Pacific Opera Victoria, Timothy Vernon, as guest conductor on this special occasion! The program will feature Handel’s Utrecht Te Deum, Hindemith’s Symphonic Metamorphosis, and Beethoven’s Coriolanus Overture.

As an added treat, School of Music faculty pianist Arthur Rowe and trumpeter Merrie Klazek will join the Orchestra in Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 1 for Strings and Trumpet.

Alumni Reunion Weekend

Inviting all School of Music alumni from near and far!

We welcome you back to campus to reconnect with fellow alumni. Mix and mingle at the dinner party on Friday, attend concerts, fun activities, or a campus tour, perform on the Phillip T. Young Recital Hall stage in an “Open Mic” concert.

New Music & Digital Media Festival

The landscape of new and experimental music in Canada has been greatly influenced by the creative individuals who have taught and studied at the School of Music. Join us as we celebrate this vital community with a weekend of new music, technology, and concerts featuring the UVic Orchestra, faculty, students, alumni and special guests.
